collect 'quartett' card games (I have around 400), but mostly there is no information about track, driver or year... Last weekend I bought another one, called 'Bolides', a very nice one I think, but I have great difficulties to ID them... So I decided to scan them all, post them all, and let the 'specialists' ID all of these... So what I would like to know is:

Car (I know it is mentioned on the card, but it happens the info is wrong)
Driver
Circuit (I know the first 8 cards are Zeltweg though...)
Year
And in case you are 'bored', a result of that particular driver in that race...

I apologise for the many number of pics, but I tried to resize them all to quite smaller scans (33kb each I think).

I might do a few others if you like... This might be fun and I hope they might even be interesting for some members, as many of these I hadn't see myself (in colour) ... :wave:

Cool! Thanks for posting.

Card F2 is not a March 717. It looks more like a Lola to me. Card H4 does show a March 717 however, with the correct year. Driver is Helmut Kelleners (who also appears on F4 with his 1972 McLaren). I wonder how correct the horsepower figures are.

While we're at it, there's no Group 5s there, only Group 6s and 7s ;)

Never had that set... and I had a drawer full of Top Trumps and Ace Trumps etc. when I was a nipper.

I'm not sure G1's a McLaren, come to think of it.... it's a bit on the two-litre-group 6 side for that ;P

So that's how these things are called in English... Learning every day... ;)

I collect those, I usually buy them at flea markets.

And apparently quite some mistakes in the game...

Rob is correct on the March 717, it's the only 717 built with chassis number 717-1. This car is still going strong in the Orwell supersports cup, it set fastest lap at the nurburgring last weekend.

@JSF: I meant to ask you in the other thread: did you know Helmut Kelleners was present at the Oldtimer GP on Sunday? At least he was supposed to be there, haven't seen or heard anything of his visit though.

Carlo Facetti-"Pam" could be from 1973, I remember the Brescia Corse V8 car was seen that year, after the works team switched to F12

These cars were Group 5 untill December 31 1975. I believe I have seen a B5 (B for prototypes?) tag for these cars, while from the following Porsche 935 period it was A5 (A for production cars?).

and the driver in the picture is surely "Pam", because Facetti had a green-white helmet,

The H3 Neuhaus 917 Spyder was sold to Georg Loos and in Hockenheim 1972 it was driven by Franz Pesch Gelo Racing and in 1973 driven by Juergen Barth Gelo Racing. The car exists still today restored and exhibit by Amalfi Racing.

D1 - I think this may be Gregor Fischer, Lola Sbarro Spyder Chevrolet.

He's listed as a a starter at Hochenhiem in the July event of the 1973 series and finished 9th in the Sepetember event

E4 - Agree thats Kaye Griffeths' ex VDS Turbo M8, later to feature LED ZEPPLIN sponsorship.

Has anyone got any contemporary photos of the ZEPPLIN colour scheme? The current owner of the car has tried for some time to locate any without success.

F3 - is Teddy Pilette, possibly in the first of the two VDS McLaren Turbo cars(same chassis as Griffeths car - E4) But it isn't Zeltweg 72 as he seems to have ran No. 36 in all the Interserie events that year and No.25 in 1973...and 6 in 1971, so maybe a Can Am event?

F2 - Looks like it's Pesch in the Gelo team car - But not at Zeltwig, he wasn't entered, so maybe Imola 72 but he's listed as no.29 for that one and the photo appears to show 28...which is 72 was normally on Herby Muller's 512M..

H1 - I agree this looks likley Peter Westbury in the October 71 Hochenhiem event although he was down to run no.4 according to the entry list. The only other logical alternative for the Bonnier T222 is Vic Elford in the July 71 event , also listed as 4.. maybe for one or other of them the number was changed, after the programmehad been printed, to 37 as 4 was Jo Bo's regular number?

The numbering in Interserie seems somewhat open to interpretation!

AFAIK, Pilette never ran in Can-Am.

Aerogi, is it possible to get bigger scans, please?
Anyway, thanks for sharing. :clap:
I'm a big Can-Am/Interserie fan, with more than 10 000 pix and I'd neser seen yours before :eek:

I've got this set too, and 1 or 2 similar ones. Very good at the time, and fantastic to look back on now. I have a German set, I think/hope, titled "Heisse Ofens", which I think translates as Hot-Rods or similar.

G3 is almost certainly Mark Donohue, not George Follmer. Photos in Pete Lyons' Can-Am book appear to show Mark using an all-red helmet at Mosport in 1972, his only race before the big testing shunt at Road Atlanta.
